Yield Growth Corp. (CSE:BOSS) (OTCQB:BOSQF) (Frankfurt:YG3) is pleased to announce that it has completed product development of Urban Juve Micellar Water, a new, gentle facial cleanser, which is in the final testing phase before launch.
Traditional soap cleansers work by creating a lather that can strip the skin and leave a harsh residue that irritates dry, sensitive skin. Urban Juve Micellar Water is composed of gentle microscopic oil molecules called micelles, which are suspended in soft water. Micelles attach to and dissolve dirt, grime and makeup, while protecting the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Micellar water has become a favourite of professional makeup artists because it can gently remove makeup without leaving harsh or oily residues common with other makeup removers.
The new product is formulated with witch hazel, and contains Urban Juve’s proprietary hemp root oil, which contributes to overall skin health through an array of anti-aging compounds. It is alcohol free with a physiological PH and a soap-free base that makes it great for all skin types.
“We created Urban Juve Micellar Water to be extra gentle, making it suitable for all skin types,” explains Bhavna Solecki, Director of Product & Content at Urban Juve. “If you have oily skin that’s prone to imperfections, the Micellar Water works to improve the quality of the skin’s natural sebum production, while gently cleansing. If you have dry skin or occasional redness, the Urban Juve Micellar Water is ultra-gentle. It is ideal for complexions susceptible to reactive flare-ups, because it helps soothe the look of red, itchy skin, and moisturizes tight-feeling skin by restoring its natural balance and suppleness.”
Urban Juve Micellar Water is now in final stability testing in recyclable plastic packaging to establish a two year shelf life. The testing is anticipated to complete in May 2019, at which time the product can go into production to launch later in the year.
